Leagues

The Granite Curling Club offers many leagues that cater to a wide range of skill levels and competitive interests. With so many choices, there's sure to be a league that's just right for you! Don't forget that curling is a social activity as well! After each game, teams head upstairs to chat, quench their thirst, and (depending on the league) eat.

Leagues are divided into two types: Manager's Choice and Skip's Choice. For Manager's Choice leagues, curlers sign up as couples or individuals and the league manager puts them together into balanced teams based on skill levels and experience. For Skip's Choice leagues, curlers form a team and sign up as a team. If you're new to curling, you'll want to start with a Manager's Choice league.

In the list below, multiple game times mean you will play at one of the times listed depending on the week. Schedules are available prior to the start of league play, and most leagues have a substitute roster in case you need to miss a game.

2023-2024 Sunday Novice

This casual league is a great place to learn the sport of curling, as these sessions focus on supporting the skill development of novices. Curlers with less than three years of experience or who have never had a class will benefit most. At each meeting, we spend the first half learning drills targeting specific skills, and the second half playing pick-up games where you can try playing a new position. Teams change week-by-week. The cost of this league is included in your membership. This league only meets on certain Sundays and the time varies in the few Spring sessions, so check the club calendar. Ask the league managers if you have questions about whether this is right for you!

2023-2024 Wednesday Women's

Wednesday Night Women’s League is a fun, hybrid league for women-identifying curlers who are interested in developing their skills, socializing, and playing some great games.

In honor of the spirit of curling and the goal of establishing a welcoming environment for all, players can join as part of a team (Skip's Choice pool), or individually (Manager's Choice pool). Teams from both pools will play each other throughout the season. The season will end with playoffs.

This league does not do meals, but teams are encouraged to bring snacks to share for post-game socializing with their opponents.

Pending player interest, managers will incorporate occasional mini skill clinics before games.

NOTE: Teams that intend to join as Skip's Choice must have their full team signed up by the time registration closes. At that time, teams without a full roster will be added to the Manager's Choice pool, and we cannot guarantee more than two players will be placed on a team together. Registrants will be sent a survey by league managers to declare their team preferences.
